It was confirmed by Invicta President Shannon Knapp on Inside MMA, that Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino next fight will be at 145 pounds instead of 140 pounds. The decision has come following Ronda Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia.
Shannon Knapp stated that:
“Cyborg’s next fight will be at 145 pounds,” Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp announced on “Inside MMA” on Friday. “This will be the first time she has competed without hydrating herself with an IV so she’s made the decision to go ahead and defend her belt.”
“Cris is a UFC athlete so the discussions about what she does in the future certainly goes on between them but especially today with the announcement that Holly (Holm) and Ronda (Rousey) will have a rematch, that will be the next fight for both, I think it does kind of take it off the table for her, kind of shelves it for a bit, I still think there’s a desire there at some point and that’s still a fight I’d like to see, whether it’s Ronda or Holly or whoever it is.”
